Do you be mindful the ultimate Beat Boxed submit I did a few weeks once more with the Flaming Lips impressed rest room? Properly I used to be pretty sad once I came across I wouldn’t be seeing The Flaming Lips having fun with at this yr’s Coachella. However I used to be ecstatic once I was contacted by FitzSimmons Architects, the masterminds and designers behind the renovation of The Flaming Lip’s Oklahoma residence that features the “precise” Flaming Lips impressed rest room pod. This rest room is just unimaginable! As Mr. Wayne Coyne says, “now you are stepping into into the drug damaged, artist facet of our residence.”
Wayne Coyne’s creativeness is persistently working wild and this space undoubtedly does not try and stop it. As Wayne says, he can stand up inside the morning and go from his “uncommon, creative mattress room” and into his ’”uncommon, futuristic rest room.” His dreaming doesn’t have to complete when he’ll get out of bed.
I can not even inform you ways impressed I’m by FitzSimmons Architects and the Flaming Lips. This distinctive space actually captures the spirit of The Flaming Lips after which some. Identical to one other creative expression that Wayne Coyne is worried in, that’s visually magical. Once you combine this experience with an construction company that “approaches construction as a kind of paintings, creating constructed varieties and areas that every encourage and performance vital places of perform” you end up with a masterpiece.
Wayne’s partner, Michelle Martin-Coyne, was moreover very involved inside the technique of making this space. A gifted artist herself, she is accountable for nearly all of The Flaming Lips pictures and has revealed a e book of her footage titled Placebo Head Wound that paperwork life with the Flaming Lips.
